Nice enough, caramel, but a bit thin (as g-man mentioned). Spirity, I would have thought more would have blown off after 55 years. very light color, mostly like a caramel.

In the bottle (or sufficient quantity) it showed the same pink tinge as the other royals.

this has now been open for about 72 hours now.

nose of baked apple with a hint of orange zest and molasses.

tastes totally of sweet baked honey apples with a slight lemon zest on the palate. Sweet finish of almond and burnt white sugar that goes on for 40 seconds.

very nice. 91/100
